Leak Sentinel V4 and Vacuum Valves

Today, 07:40 AM

I just posted a short video review of the Leak Sentinel v4 from Vivid housing


But I also wanted to make everyone aware that you can buy just the vacuum valve for €95 including pump and shipping instead of getting an OEM one with your housing. That is pretty cost effective in fact less than half the price




4K downscale vs 1080p

Yesterday, 01:50 PM

I have done some side by side comparisons of clips shot at 4K 100 Mbps and 1080p 24 Mbps and I can't see any difference if any sort between the two.
Furthermore I have compared the down scaled footage with the LX100 and the avchd on the GX7 with kit lens and the latter looks actually better
What are the theoretical benefits of downscaled footage as I can't seem to see any???

New Nauticam 29 port for Panasonic 14-42mm PZ could be a blast for 4K video shooters

Coming soon is a new shorter port for the Panasonic 14-42 Power Zoom lens. The port is 29mm and the idea is to put the lens as close as possible to the port.


Some test shots with the WWL-1 indicate that quality is great link to smugmug here https://nauticam.smu...Tests/NA-EM5II/


When used with the Panasonic 4K digital cameras the resulting crop makes the lens near to rectilinear, what is more interesting you can zoom through the lens without quality loss .


With the combination of CMC and WWL-1 and bayonet system together with the Panasonic 14-42mm power zoom in the new 29 port or 14-42 II in the normal 35 port you can achieve a compact experience with a micro four third camera.



My favourite 4K video settings for the Panasonic LX100

I am really liking this camera for land use and for wide angle wide with the short port
I am not convinced at all it is a good option for still images underwater and for macro video it needs a few extra bits

Somewhat different option than other reviews on line
